From the bus survey

this is a common problem I face in trying to decide what photo to use. I find something I want to shoot , then I take a million pictures of it, then I try to figure out which ONE to use.... so I will leave it up to you to decide. Cast a vote on the one you would pick to post (it any at all)





a pretty good representation of how these people plant on whatever they can.

all of these photos were taken from the bus, these last 2 were on the border of Mexico and Guatemala

Wait! I didn't get to say yet. I like #4 the best.

I love all your Guatemalan pics. Question - how to get the people pics of random people? Telephoto lens without them knowing? Ask permission in Spanish? Honestly, I love taking pics of people but I don't know how to do it on the street.

Let me know -


P.S. thanks for the comment on my post. I'm starting to hate blogging. I might keep up my Flikr account so I can post my photogs and such though. And I'll still come here for a peek.

Good question, I think I mastered the hip shot.... almost every shot I had I would just hold it low and I think that when people see the camera they don't think much of it, but if it is up to your eye sometimes they freak out. Some pics of the kids I would have to pay the mothers to take the photos of them which I would gladly do. I took hundreds of hipshots that didn't work out at all, thanks to a good camera and interesting people I made it work out.

Oh sorry I didn't fully answer your question, I have a 17-55mm lens I use for the hard shots I would open it to 17mm just to make sure I could capture it. Some are a telephoto lens. I have a 70-200mm lens that is super sweet. A lot of times I would take a picture of the person then show it to them on my camera...they like that.

I like all of them, and kept scrolling to see which one to pick. I really like #3 or #4. Cort, keep up the great work on this blog. I'm not great at commenting, but I LOVE to look.
